Andrew Miller will return to the Boston Red Sox, as the young lefty has reportedly signed a one-year deal with the club. Miller pitched in 17 games for the Red Sox last season, posting a 6-3 record with a 5.54 ERA and 50 strikeouts.
Miller's signing was first reported by Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports. Miller, who is 26 years old, earned $1.3 million last season with the Red Sox, making 12 total starts. Miller is expected to be the team's fourth or fifth starter, based on the other talent Boston signs this offseason.
In six seasons, Miller has a 21-29 record with a career 5.79 ERA, 288 strikeouts and a career 1.75 WHIP. Prior to his stint with the Red Sox last season, Miller had pitched for the Detroit Tigers and Florida Marlins. One of his best season came in 2008 when Miller posted a 6-10 record with a 5.87 ERA and a career-high 89 strikeouts in 29 games and 20 starts.
